7th Pay Commission – Defence Forces Officers in Peace Stations to get Ration in Cash

The clarification came amid widespread anguish among Army officials serving in peace stations against a recommendation by the 7th Pay Commission to scrap free rations to them.

Armed forces officers serving in forward bases will continue to get their free ration without any change while those posted in peace stations will be provided the benefit in cash, government sources said on Wednesday.

After Entitled Ration Now Army Looks to Cut Troops’ Liquor Quota

The armed forces are looking to clip the liquor quota of troops in a bid to thwart misuse as well as illicit sale of the subsidised alcohol to civilians, a move that comes at a time when the ration facilities of military officers has been curtailed.

Defence personnel get liquor cheap from the government’s canteen stores department (CSD). In the pre-goods and services tax era, they were exempt from the sales tax applicable in different states and because of this the cost of alcohol in these canteens was lower than the price in civilian wine shops. Liquor has even now been kept out of the purview of GST.

7th CPC – भत्तों को लेकर जेटली ने बोला ये झूठ!

अरुण जेटली ने धोखा दिया?नई दिल्ली। सातवें वेतन आयोग (7th Pay Commission) की सिफारिशों पर चर्चा के लिए केन्द्र सरकार के कर्मचारियों की एक बैठक हुई। इस बैठक में यह फैसला किया गया कि केन्द्र सरकार की कर्मचारियों के प्रतिनिधि उनके इस मामले को सरकार के बीच में ले जाएंगे। इस बैठक का मुख्य उद्देश्य यह था कि केन्द्रीय कर्मचारियों की दिक्कतों को सरकार तक पहुंचाया जा सके। जिस तरह से अलाउंस दिए गए हैं, उनसे कर्मचारी दुखी हैं। उनकी मांग है कि जुलाई 2016 से संशोधित भत्ते दिए जाएं।
अरुण जेटली ने धोखा दिया?

प्रशासनिक सेवा (आईएएस) के 24 अधिकारियों समेत सिविल सेवा के 381 अधिकारियों के खिलाफ समयपूर्व सेवानिवृत्ति

कार्यबल को जवाबदेह बनाने के लिए मोदी सरकार का कुशल प्रशासन का मंत्र है ‘काम करके दिखाओ या भुगतो।’ कार्मिक मंत्रालय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने यह जानकारी दी। उन्होंने बताया कि मंत्रालय ने खराब प्रदर्शन करने वालों और कथित रूप से अवैध गतिविधियों में लिप्त रहने के कारण भारतीय प्रशासनिक सेवा (आईएएस) के 24 अधिकारियों समेत सिविल सेवा के 381 अधिकारियों के खिलाफ समयपूर्व सेवानिवृत्ति और पारिश्रिमक में कटौती जैसी कार्रवाई की है। विभाग ने ‘3 इयर्स ऑफ सस्टेन्ड एचआर इनीशिएटिव्स – फाउंडेशन फॉर ए न्यू इंडिया’ नाम की पुस्तिका में इन उपायों को रेखांकित किया है। प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के समक्ष प्रेजेंटेशन में भी इस बाबत जानकारी दी गई।

पुस्तिका में कहा गया, ‘‘नौकरशाही में जवाबदेही सुनिश्चित करने के लिए सरकार ने सत्यनिष्ठा और प्रदर्शन को आधार स्तंभ बनाया है जिस पर सुशासन निर्भर करता है।’’ इसमें बताया कि विदेशों में पदस्थापना वाले उन अधिकारियों के खिलाफ भी कड़ी कार्रवाई की गई जो तय कार्यकाल से अधिक समय तक वहीं बने हुए हैं। मंत्रालय ने कहा, ‘‘ये कठोर उपाय नौकरशाही में जवाबदेही और अनुशासन की भावना उत्पन्न करने के लिए काफी हद तक सफल रहे हैं और इसके जरिए कर्मचारियों तक संदेश भी पहुंचा है कि या तो प्रदर्शन करके दिखाओ या फिर बाहर जाओ। प्रदर्शन करने वाले कार्यबल पर इसका सकारात्मक प्रभाव पड़ा है।’’
इसमें बताया कि आईएएस, आईपीएस तथा आईएफओएस जैसी अखिल भारतीय सेवाओं के 2,953 अधिकारियों समेत ग्रुप ए के 11,828 अधिकारियों के रिकॉर्ड की समीक्षा की गई। भ्रष्टाचारी और अवांछित अधिकारियों को दूर करने के लिए ग्रुप बी के 19,714 अधिकारियों के सेवा रिकॉर्ड भी देखे गए। प्रधानमंत्री के समक्ष प्रेजेंटेशन में मंत्रालय ने बताया कि 381 नौकरशाहों के खिलाफ कार्रवाई की गई। एक आईएएस अधिकारी और दो आईपीएस अधिकारियों समेत ग्रुप ए के कुल 25 अधिकारियों तथा ग्रुप बी के 99 अधिकारियों को सरकार ने समय पूर्व सेवानिवृत्ति दी।

7th Pay Commission – Delay in Allowances Affects 48 Lakh Government Employees As Many Unable to Pay House Rents, Insurance Premiums, Vehicle Loans, Tuition Fees of Children on Time

The delay in higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission for 11 months has directly affected 48 lakh central government employees as most of them were unable to pay house rents, insurance premiums, vehicle loans, tuition fees of children, instalments of home loans and many other things on time. Last month in June, the Union Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi accepted few recommendations on higher allowances under 7th Pay Commission but most of them were unhappy as their demands were not completely fulfilled.

आरपीएफ आरक्षकों पर लगा मारपीट का आरोप


इटारसी. होशंगाबाद के एक हार्डवेअर व्यापारी के साथ सादी ड्रेस में मौजूद आरपीएफ के तीन आरक्षकों ने मारपीट कर दी। आरक्षकों ने व्यापारी को सिर्फ इसलिए पीटा क्योंकि उसने अपनी पिकअप गाड़ी निकालने के लिए रास्ते में खड़ी एक आरक्षक की बाइक को हटाने के लिए कहा था। पीडि़त व्यापारी ने इसकी शिकायत जीआरपी में कराई है।

यह है मामला
होशंगाबाद निवासी हार्डवेअर व्यापारी अमेंद्रप्रताप सिंह 52 वर्ष अपने एक परिचित की पिकअप से इटारसी आए थे। उनका परिचित इटारसी स्थित रेलवे के पार्सल कार्यालय में सामान बुक करने आया था। शुक्रवार रात साढ़े दस बजे जब वह माल बुक करने के बाद पिकअप वाहन से परिसर से बाहर निकल रहे थे उसी दौरान उनके रास्ते में एक आरपीएफ आरक्षक की बाइक आ गई। व्यापारी ने उक्त आरक्षक को बाइक हटाने को कहा जिस पर आरक्षक ने व्यापारी से अभद्रता कर दी। इसी बीच वहां दो अन्य आरक्षक भी आ गए और उन्होंने व्यापारी को गाड़ी से उतारकर उसकी जमकर पिटाई लगा दी।

डर से नहीं गया थाने
अपने साथ बेवजह हुई मारपीट से व्यापारी इतना घबरा गया था कि उसकी रात में ही जीआरपी थाने जाने की हिम्मत नहीं हुई। अपने कुछ परिचितों को साथ लेकर वह व्यापारी शनिवार सुबह 11 बजे जीआरपी थाने पहुंचा। व्यापारी ने आरपीएफ आरक्षकों पर कार्रवाई का आवेदन दिया। जीआरपी ने पीडि़त व्यक्ति का मेडिकल दोपहर करीब 12 बजे कराया। समाचार लिखे जाने तक जीआरपी ने इस मामले में कोई भी एफआईआर दर्ज नहीं की थी।

किसने क्या कहा
हमने उनको बीच में खड़ी बाइक को हटाने के लिए कहा था। इतनी सी बात वे तीनों भड़क गए और हमें गाड़ी से उतारकर लात-घूंसों से जमकर पीटा। जीआरपी में कार्रवाई के लिए आवेदन दिया है। इस मामले में हम वरिष्ठ अधिकारियों को भी शिकायत करेंगे।
अमेंद्र प्रताप सिंह, पीडि़त व्यापारी
जिस व्यापारी के साथ मारपीट की घटना हुई है। उसने थाने में आवेदन दिया है। उसका मेडिकल कराया गया है। फिलहाल मामले को जांच में लिया गया है। जांच के बाद ही आगे की कार्रवाई की जाएगी।

VERY VERY BAD - सीएजी (CAG) के आडिट रिपोर्ट ने रेलवे की पोल खोल दी - रेलवे में परोशे जा रहे खाने इंसानी इस्तेमाल के मापडंडों से बहुत नीचे CAG Report Says that the Food Supplied in the Indian Railways is Worst


Image result for Food  Indian Railways is Worst
भारतीय रेलवे की कैटरिंग सर्विस पर सीएजी की ऑडिट रिपोर्ट शुक्रवार को संसद में रखी जानी है। रिपोर्ट में बताया गया है कि रेलवे स्टेशनों पर जो खाने-पीने की चीजें परोसी जा रही हैं, वो इंसानी इस्तेमाल के लायक ही नहीं हैं। रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक, ट्रेनों और स्टेशनों पर परोसी जा रही चीजें प्रदूषित हैं। डिब्बाबंद और बोतलबंद चीजों को उनके सुरक्षित इस्तेमाल के लिए तयशुदा टाइम पीरियड के गुजर जाने के बावजूद बेचा जा रहा है। इसके अलावा, अनाधिकृत ब्रैंड की पानी की बोतलें बेची जा रही हैं। 

सूरेश प्रभु भले रेलवे में नये मुकाम हासिल करने के दावे कर रहे हों लेकिन रेलवे का सूरत-ए-हाल कुछ और है। सीएजी (CAG) के आडिट रिपोर्ट ने  रेलवे की पोल खोल दी है। सीएजी ने कहा कि रेलवे में परोशे जा रहे खाने इंसानी इस्तेमाल के मापडंडों से बहुत नीचे हैं।
CAG रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक, ट्रेनों और स्टेशनों पर परोसी जा रही चीजें प्रदूषित हैं। डिब्बाबंद और बोतलबंद चीजों को  एक्सपायर होने के बावजूद भी बेचा जा रहा है।
इसके अलावा, अनाधिकृत ब्रैंड की पानी की बोतलें बेची जा रही हैं। जांच में पाया गया कि रेल परिसरों में साफ सफाई पर कोई ध्यान नहीं दिया जाता है। इसके अलावा, ट्रेन में बिक रहीं चीजों का बिल न दिए जाने और फूड क्वॉलिटी में कई तरह की खामियों की भी शिकायतें हैं।
